Game: Movie Review

Kabir Malhotra (Anupam Kher) a multi millionaire (albeit an unhappy one),  invites 4 people to his Private Island in Greece by promising  to change their fortunes. These four are Vikram (Jimmy Shergill), struggling Bollywood actor , OP Ramsay (Boman Irani) a politician in Thailand who also runs human trafficking trade, Tisha a journalist who is also Kabir’s estranged daughter & Neil Menon (Abhishek Bachchan) a Casino Owner and drug dealer. These five lives are interconnected through a person who is now dead.

On their arrival Kabir tells them the story of Maya (Sarah Jane Dais) who is also his estranged daughter and he accuses  Neil n Ramsay of ruining  her & Vikram of killing her. Malhotra wants to take revenge on these 3 men, but the very next day he commits suicide. Or does he?? Sia (Kangana Ranawat) investigates his suicide/ murder & from there on the story takes various twists & turns to find out who’s behind the intriguing murder. The suspicion turns on each of the characters.

The film has been shot in Istanbul, UK, Greece, Thailand & Mumbai. Cinematography is brilliant. Locations are beautiful especially the Greek Island Samoa. ‎’The story is a fast paced  murder mystery & also a tale of revenge. Abhishek’s character as Neil, a cool, I don’t care a damn dude is interesting. Anupam Kher doesn’t suit the role of a super-duper rich business tycoon. He simply doesn’t have that air. Boman Irani has over acted. Kangana Ranaut has under acted (Flat performance). Songs are forgettable.
